Boise State is looking to get back on top in the Mountain West this season but it is not going to be easy with San Diego State there. One thing they are also looking to do is bag some Power 5 opponents.
They grabbed their first opportunity with a three point win over Washington State this week. Oregon State should be easier prey.
The Beavers are in a down cycle looking to build the program back up to respectability.
They could jump start that with a win in this one against a good Boise State team that still draws national attention.
It is probably a little too much to expect but at least the Beavers are at home in their last nonconference game of the season.
Boise State Broncos
Boise State took care of business but the scoring was down for a game between two teams that really like to fling it around. They also failed to cover against a desperate Washington State team that needed a win.
Brett Rypien was a freshman sensation with more than 3300 yards passing. Part of the reason the Broncos didn’t win by more is that he was not very sharp – three interceptions. Boise State won despite being outgained by 100 yards.
The Broncos always want balance on offense and they have it with RB Jeremy McNicholls. He rushed for more than 100 yards against Wazzu and is averaging better than 5 yards per carry.
The balance they have enables them to run any play any time.
The pass defense was torched last week as Washington State threw the ball 71 times. Nobody throws as much as they do so I am going to call it a bit of a one off for Boise.
Oregon State Beavers
Expectations are pretty low in Corvallis these days. The Beavers are likely the worst team in the PAC 12 North and with Colorado looking improved probably the whole conference.
One good thing is that they did not lose to FCS Idaho State.
They were favoured by 43.5 points though and failed to cover. I am not going to read too much into that but at the same time it is not a positive indicator.
What was more impressive is that they hung tough in their opener at Minnesota.
The Beavers have a bonafide playmaker in Victor Bolden Jr. Listed as a receiver they also create opportunities for him in the running game and after two games he is leading in rushing and receiving.
QB Darrell Garretson is a transfer from Utah State.
He was good against Minnesota and not against Idaho State, go figure. He is more steady hand than dynamic playmaker so he has to make good decisions all the time.

The last time these programs met was in 2013 and the Beavers won that one. The program has fallen a lot since then making it hard to see how they are going to repeat that kind of success.

This is a lot of points to give up on the road but I just don’t see how Oregon State is going to be able to slow down the Broncos regularly in this one. They might hit a few big plays against BSU but in the end it will be a long afternoon for the Beavers.
